Duke Recognizes Rolesville Student for Academic Achievement Thales Academy Rolesville student Ivan Bachinsky was recognized by the Duke University Talent Identification Program at a ceremony held on May 19. The Duke TIP 7th Grade Talent Search identifies students across the United States who have scored at or above the 95th percentile on a grade-level achievement test. As part of the program, these academically talented students take above-level college-entrance exams (ACT or SAT) to learn more about their abilities. Ivan received a Grand Recognition award in addition to the NC State award. These awards honor 7th graders who have earned scores equal to or better than 90 percent of college-bound seniors who took the same tests.
